With the advent of the 5G era, more and more 5G smartphones have been born. Many people are accustomed to recording the beauty around them with their smartphones, and want to change to a camera phone that supports 5G networks. So how to choose a camera phone? We are offering to take a look a few models that are new and good at photography.
1. Honor 30
Price: starting at 2589 yuan ($379)
In order to obtain outstanding picture quality, the phone should use a large-size CMOS. But large-size CMOS often requires a larger lens to cooperate. This is bound to challenge the size of the smartphone. The rear of the Honor 30 carries a quad-camera system consisting of a 40MP ultra-sensitive main camera + 50x periscope ultra-stable telephoto lens + 8MP wide-angle lens + 2MP macro lens. The main camera adopts IMX600 arranged in RYYB. The outsole is still at the top of the pyramid of smartphone imaging; the 50x periscope handheld ultra-stable telephoto lens still has the exclusive configuration; the 8-megapixel wide-angle lens + the 2-megapixel macro lens are complemented in the image focal length.
On the front side, the Honor 30 hosts a 32MP ultra-clear lens that supports automatic fill light, has first-class color performance, and can shoot beautiful and pleasing skin tones. Combined with the AI beauty algorithm, it can shoot a fresh, natural and beautiful selfie. At the same time, the super night scene algorithm can take more beautiful selfies in low light environment.
As a 3000-yuan smartphone, the Honor 30 has a comprehensive and balanced performance. It also features a hard-core Kirin 985 5G SoC chip. The phone sports a built-in 4000mAh large battery, which supports 40W super-fast charging. To solve the heat dissipation problem, it uses VC liquid cooling.
Pros: excellent performance in photography, supports 50x digital zoom, and also supports dual image stabilization
Cons: it still uses a single speaker and it canceled the 3.5mm headphone jack
2. VIVO S7
Price: starting at 2798 yuan ($410)
Gizchina News of the week
The VIVO S7 is the latest generation product of the VIVO S series, focusing on selfies and the weight of the product. In order to reduce the weight of this 5G smartphone, the company used five internal body structure optimizations. Among them, we can mention reducing the infrared photosensitive thickness by 10%, shortening the card slot to 0.24mm, etc. As a result, the body thickness is only 7.39mm. The overall weight of the body is controlled at 170g, making it the thinnest and lightest 5G smartphone coming our way from VIVO. Also, it ranks among the top of the thin and light smartphones list.
In addition to the thin and light body, the biggest selling point of the VIVO S7 is selfies. The machine comes with the highest-pixel selfie camera in the industry. It has a 44MP ultra-high-definition PDAF autofocus main camera and 105° ultra-wide-angle sub-camera. Thanks to 44 million pixels and f/2.0 large aperture, the picture is clear enough. As for the 8-megapixel 105 ultra-wide-angle lens, the self-portrait viewing range is twice that of the ordinary 78° lens. In addition, it also has an AF autofocus motor. The latter hich can keep the focus of the phone camera on the eyes. This can effectively solve the problems of low accuracy, blurry picture, and out of focus caused by traditional smartphones’ fixed focus.
On the rear side, the VIVO S7 carries a 64-megapixel main camera + 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens + 2MP black and white lenses, and supports the Super Night Scene 4.0 algorithm. The latter can intelligently identify the shooting environment and adjust the exposure strategy. In addition, the VIVO S7 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. The maximum memory is 12GB while the storage reaches up to 256GB. The battery has a 4000mAh capacity, and it supports a 33W fast charge.
Pros: It adopts a unique structural design to reduce the thickness of the smartphone.
Cons: The phone uses a plastic frame. The chip is the mid-range Snapdragon 765G and its performance is still much worse than the flagship processor.
So are there 5G smartphones with a good camera performance?
